(From the publisher):
She was ruled by her head...
Only one thing stood between Edward, Lord Rawlings, and a life of rakish debaucher: a spinster. Even worse, a liberal, educated, vicar's daughter -- guardian to ten-year-old Jeremy, the true heir to the title Edward did not want. If Jeremy would not assume the dukedom, Edward must, a fate of dire responsibility -- and utter boredom.
But this time, her heart was taking the reins...
Since there had never been a female his lordship couldn't charm, Edward was sure he would win over the old girl. But Pegeen MacDougal was neither old, nor a girl -- she was all woman, with a prickly tongue, infernal green eyes and a buried sensuality that drove him mad. Unfortunately, she loathed him and his class for their fripperies and complete disregard for the less fortunate. But for the sake of the boy, she agreed to accompany him back to his estate.
